Tea leaves embody the soil they're from, season picked, and the curing process. These leaves are tended following strict organic practices. The growers are dedicated to pure practices and stewardship. They only use skillful traditional handling that enhances flavor, nutrients, and benefits.Eden Matcha is hand harvested in April from organic Camellia sinensis bushes when leaves are most tender. Steaming and rubbing prevents oxidation and ensures the emerald green. Stems and veins are removed by hand from the leaves, that are cut and dried in preparation for a small granite stone mill. For optimum flavor and efficacy it takes one hour per mill set to make thirty grams of this Matcha. The Matcha is packed in 30 gram tin plated steel cans with an antioxidant protecting oxygen absorber in the bottom. The oxygen absorber ensures deep smooth flavor, pleasing aroma, and brilliant color of Eden Matcha.
Worldwide research points to green tea’s powerful antioxidant polyphenols for its healthful properties. Epigallo-catechin gallate (EGCG, also an antibiotic) is the most prominent of these.

Researchers at the University of Kansas found antioxidant levels of green tea 100 times more effective than vitamin C, and 25 times better than vitamin E.
